In South Florida, plastic surgery is performed for a number of reasons. Although many consider plastic surgery’s only purpose is for vanity, in many situations, it can do much more for a person’s health. Reconstructive surgery is a vital part of recovery for many who suffer from trauma. Depending on the situation, it can also solve problems like sleep apnea, back pain, and insomnia. The most common categories of plastic surgery are breast, fat reduction, body lifts, face and neck, and genital surgery.
Most plastic surgeries are performed in an outpatient setting. This is done so that patients will have their surgeries in a more luxurious, relaxed setting. Some may feel that this is not safe, but as long as you research the facility and make sure they have the proper equipment and accreditations, you can count on it being safe. Outpatient surgeries are also more conveniently timed, as hospital operating room schedules are often altered every time an emergency comes through. When it comes to outpatient surgeries, there are many options.
First of all are the breast surgeries. Breast augmentation is a surgery that makes the breasts larger by inserting implants. Breast reduction, on the other hand, makes the breasts smaller and more manageable. Larger breasts cause back pain and cysts if not cared for properly, and people rarely have access to the bras necessary for this. Some breasts sag, and the outpatient surgery solution to this issue is a mastopexy. A mastopexy is, quite simply, a breast life. Breast augmentations using fat from other areas of the body is called a fat grafting breast augmentation.
To eliminate fat from the body, most outpatient surgery facilities offer three main procedures. Liposuction the traditional way, Vaser liposuction, and laser liposuction. Traditional liposuction inserts liquid in-between fat and muscle. Vaser liposuction uses ultrasonic waves to break up fat. Laser liposuction liquefies fat with the use of a laser. After fat is broken up, it is removed from the body in all three of these procedures.
A body lift is a combination of various body part lifts. For example, an arm lift, a thigh lift, and a tummy tuck would be considered a body lift. If your buttock needs a lift, you can try a gluteal augmentation. Most of these surgeries act by pinning back what hangs or lifting what sags. A tummy tuck, for example, is the act of tightening skin, muscle, and fascia to reveal a flat tummy. A mommy makeover is another type of body lift that combines surgeries to regain the pre-baby body.
Other outpatient surgeries include otoplasty/ear surgery, blepharoplasty/eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty/nose surgery, a facelift, a brow lift, chin surgery, and more. Surgery can even be performed on the female genitalia to solve issues like large labia. A labiaplasty is a surgery that shapes and downsizes the labia so that women can feel comfortable in their own skin and also so that the labia are easier to keep clean, because overly large labia can lead to infections.
